As an outdoor lover's dream, the Lakeshore neighborhood in San Francisco has more green space than concrete!  With the Pacific Ocean bordering on the west, the neighborhood starts up north at the San Francisco Zoo and Pine Lake Park. Running down the east side is Highway 280 almost to John Daly Drive that closes up the southern tip.  

San Francisco is known for being one of the most dog-friendly cities in California. There are not too many dog-friendly establishments found in the Lakeshore neighborhood as it is more residential and heavy on the natural park areas.  

Mild weather is the norm in the San Francisco area. Lakeshore is right off the coast, however, so fog will often be an issue and has a tendency to stick around for longer into the day. The reduced visibility during the morning hours might make afternoons and early evenings better times to walk with your furry friend.

A good 75% of the Lakeshore neighborhood is natural terrain. You and your furry friend can, at almost every turn, find some green. The green spaces will boast natural hills and trails while the residential areas will feel more flat. The residential areas where your walks with your furry friend might begin are small enough that the climbs are more intense. Closer to the coast, you will find the Lake Merced area and the natural hills and trails common to a larger park and lake area.  

The residential areas are almost grid-like with a combination of front and rear drives. The San Francisco State University and the Stonestown Galleria are both within the borders of this neighborhood and places you and your pup will find more automotive traffic and sidewalk experiences. Keep your pup on a leash in these areas and be ready to pick up and carry out any messes.

Green abounds within the borders of the Lakeshore neighborhood. Making up a good 75% of the area are parks, lakes, golf courses, and even the San Francisco Zoo! Starting from the north and working down, you and your pup can find Pine Lake Park, a 30-acre park famous for its migratory birds. The Sigmund Stern Recreation Grove is home to a 33-acre outdoor recreation center that includes a dog play area.  

Off the Pacific coast is Lake Merced, a large freshwater lake and the namesake of the 614-acre park that is a popular destination spot. A 4.5-mile paved trail circles the lake’s perimeter. Amenities include picnic areas, a boathouse, fishing pier, and boat launch. Three golf courses surround the park. But to top off the experience for your furry friend, the Lake Merced Dog Play Area is located in the northeastern corner of the park. Lake Merced Park is a definite go-to spot for you and your nature loving pup!
